    I thought it would be interesting to discuss who you believe have had the best overall skating and stickhandling abilities combined. I think we could all agree who #1 is, but who are the best of the rest?

    1. McDavid
    2. Bure
    3. Crosby
    4. Fedorov
    5. Ovechkin
    6. Kovalchuk
    7. Jagr
    8. Malkin
    9. Datsyuk
    10. Lemieux

    HM: Forsberg, Karlsson, MacKinnon, Barzal, Gaudreau, Kane, Kuznetsov

    I'm probably missing a few but that's roughly what I came up with off the top of my head.

    Datsyuk was ridiculous. Barzal reminds me so
    Much of him.

    I’ve been going to Pens games since 1976 and in my opinion, Kovalev is the best I’ve seen.

    On top of those already mentioned, Mogilny and Semin were both pretty great. And I’m biased, but Gilmour :)

    Beliveau, Denis Savard, Datsuyk, Perrault, Lemieux, Gretzky, Orr, McDavid, Makita, Crosby

    HM - Malkin, Dionne, Lafleur, Bure, Kent Nilsson, Messier, P. Kane, ...probably a whole bunch I've forgotten. Oh, and McDavid wouldn't be #1. That would be Orr, possibly followed by Beliveau, who I never saw as a young man, when he still had great speed. 66 and 99 were giants, also. They controlled the game when the puck was on their stick.
    Never saw the Rocket, nor a young Harvey(just with STL, maybe a bit in NY?). Going by people who saw them, they would be considered for this list.

    Oh, and the Soviets were insane! Makarov, Lirianov...

    Pavel Bure has to be the answer.
